Welcome to the RegMedNet spotlight on wound healing!

Many different injuries such as trauma, surgery, burns and diseases such as diabetes can result in acute or chronic wounds, which can have a significant impact on quality of life and significant healthcare costs: amputation sites can become compromised, and chronic wounds frequently fail to heal. Regenerative medicine has great potential to transform the healing of wounds by increasing the speed of healing, and reducing risk of infection and scarring. Some animals can even fully regenerate limbs, meaning a better understanding of the mechanisms of healing and regeneration has the potential to allow the true regeneration of tissue – including structures such as the sebaceous glands and hair follicles.

The spotlight on wound healing will be a 2-month focus on wound healing and regenerative medicine featuring a variety of content types, including journal articles and exclusive features, covering various key topics and issues in the field, such as translating basic research into the clinic.

We hope you enjoy the spotlight and welcome any queries and feedback! And don't forget, you are welcome to share your own news, research and opinion on this topic your own posts or comments.
